If you use Coinbase there are Tx fees. There are no Tx fees using Circle or Localbitcoin. The idea is to mine enough to cover those fees before selling the hashlet. Also if you use localbitcoin, there are no TX fees with better conversion rates. You can convert BTC to moneypak or vanilla (these are what i've been doing anyway). There are risks but I haven't been scammed yet.

This is by no means a strategy that is easy or maybe even worth the time. However, with so many MS avenues closing down, this is just another take on MS if someone is interested in cryptocurrency.
